The existing DOS solution depends on CIFS (e.g. samba).

Complain, complain. You seem to want your cake and to eat it too: must be
able to access files anywhere, but must be secure.  The "\\host\path"
notation depends on the presence of CIFS servers, such as samba.

Perhaps you should set all files you want to access up within the scope of
FTP servers, and use ftp URLs in all cases.
